Restriction Exemption Program

Under the new Provincial Restriction Exemption Program (REP), the Town of Edson will now be requiring all patrons/attendees aged 12 and over to provide valid:

At no time will these medical documents be kept or stored by staff. The documentation must be shown on each visit to the facility. And please ONLY use the main entrance to Repsol Place at this time.

Youth under the age of 18 who are accessing the facility for the sole purpose of taking part in a youth sport or recreational activity would NOT need to provide proof of vaccination status, medical exemption, or negative test. However, those participants are required to:

Individuals 12 years and older that are attending to spectate or use any other amenity in the facility MUST show one of the acceptable options for proof of vaccination, medical exemption, or paid negative COVID-19 test. As well, REP applies to youth taking part in activities that include adult participants, such as public swimming, public skating, and shinny hockey.

Following an individual’s 12th birthday there will be a grace period to allow them to become fully vaccinated under REP. There will be a 10-week grace period. (8 week interval between the two doses, plus two weeks).

We’re asking all residents and visitors to be patient and understanding while we implement this system. We understand there will be some frustration, however, there is zero tolerance for abuse of staff at any time.
